Leeds United have been linked with a loan move for Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher this summer – and some of the Whites fans on Twitter have responded to claim they would love to see him at Elland Road next season.
According to Football.London, the Yorkshire outfit are one of 12 teams that are potentially interested in Chelsea’s young talent, who is expected to be departing Stamford Bridge on another loan spell.
It is explained that Leeds are joined by Crystal Palace, Fulham and Southampton as named Premier League suitors for the 20-year-old.
The report adds that Leeds and Palace will have to settle for loan deals despite potentially wanting a permanent one, plus Chelsea want him to join a team that have a similar playing style to them and preferably in the top-flight.
Gallagher came up against Leeds twice last season in the Championship, as he spent the first half of the campaign with Charlton Athletic and made a switch to Swansea City in January.
He’s a highly-rated central midfielder that showed his attacking qualities during his two loan moves with six goals and 11 assists during the 2019/20 season.
A selection of Leeds supporters on social media are convinced that Gallagher is an ideal fit for them and want a deal to be completed ahead of the new season.
The Chelsea man would add some extra depth to Marcelo Bielsa’s options in the centre of the park, plus his neat first touch and high energy could make him a real favourite.
Here are some Leeds fans discussing loan target Gallagher:

I liked the look of him in a few games against us this season. Not sure Frank would swallow it though.
